Lake Michigan and Chicago Lakefront Protection Ordinance - Case No. 629

Today the issue will come before the Chicago Plan Commission to consider whether the proposal meets the requirements of the Lakefront Protection Ordinance.  The ordinance recognizes that the City's Lake Michigan shoreline possesses special environmental, recreational, cultural, historical, community and aesthetic interests and values that require protection and preservation. 

The 1 pm agenda lists the issue as "Lake Michigan and Chicago Lakefront Protection Ordinance Application No. 629, submitted by Rogers Park Solutions, LLC for the property generally located at 7313-7333 N. Sheridan Road within the Private-Use Zone of the Lake Michigan and Chicago Lakefront Protection District. The applicant proposes to construct a public parking garage with 250 parking spaces, approximately fifty-eight feet in height. The property is currently zoned B1-5, Neighborhood Shopping District".
